I'm going to do a 2 hour(or 150 laps) endurance race with a friend of mine on a 1975 cb125s. But we can't really find the stock sized tire(which we probably don't want anyway) The stock size is a 90/90-18 F and a a 100/90-17 rear. I would prefer that the tires stay DOT, but wouldn't mind doing slicks if I could find a dealer that had tires that size, and could them to me in a week. The race is on the 29th of sept, so Getting alittle pressed for time... Any idea on what will fit a 125 with out rubbing on major hard parts? I can bend fenders or what ever, but don't really want to cut the frame swing arm/redesign the whole thing...

I'm boing to be running it in the USMRR series:

man, there are at least 4 or 5 of us on here who would buy those bridgestones if we could get them! anybody work at a tire or motorcycle shop where they can order the BT39SS from bridgestone?? my plan B is to just have a friend in Japan buy them, and send them over by boat...but thats alot of headache for a damn tire...

Guys,
These tires were originally developed for the 2004 Honda Dream 50R. The easiest way to get a set is to walk into or call your local Honda dealer's parts dept. Fronts and rears are the same. If they can't get them for some reason, which I doubt would be the case, give Vicious Cycle here in Portland, Oregon a call. I just talked with Rochelle and they are expecting a bulk order any day. I think the dealer gets about $55-60 each. Vicious is selling them for $69 each.

thanks for the info guys! the tire size for the honda dream 50R is 2.50 x 18, which is PERFECT for the cb125 front wheel (and both wheels for me, since i am lacing an extra 18" front rim i have to my rear hub).
